by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Blue Jays are considering going with a six-man rotation for stretches during the upcoming months, as manager John Gibbons told SportsNet.ca Thursday.

With fewer days off in May and June, the team might turn to J.A. Happ for some spot starts moving forward, in order to give the rotation a bit more time to rest. Gibbons mentioned the series opener in Philadelphia May 5 as a possible chance to get Happ into the rotation. The Blue Jays don't have a day off in May until the 20th.
